The X Factor Will Return In Just 10 Days!

The X Factor 2012 will start airing in just 10 days, ITV have announced! Tulisa, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh will be back alongside Nicole Scherzinger for the new series, and the first show will start on August 18th at 8pm. Strictly Come Dancing – its BBC rival – won’t be back until mid September, meaning that the 75 minute(!) premiere will have us all watching! The pre-recorded shows were filmed before Gary sadly announced that baby Poppy arrived stillborn, and the live shows will not begin until the audition and boot camp stages have been shown on TV. We’re looking forward to tuning in! BS
